Visited today and was guided by Roger. A real gem of a tour, ours took around 2 and a half hours. Covers all the main attractions of the city and its 2000 years of history. Well recommended to visitors and new comers to the area.

Well done to Richard, our guide for the tour around Bath. Knowledgeable, informative and funny, he made a long, two hour + walk enjoyable. But for goodness sake, wear comfortable supportive footwear, thongs and sandals will leave your feet aching.
